Things haven't changed much since Jan 1984. I should try to recreate this.
Wish I still had my original high score book!

Great thread!

Here's one of me from the summer of 1996 (I'm revealing my age here).

Looks like VGC liked to keep his gaming collection organized back then too. Lol

Looks like I had a makeshift organizer covered with stickers - or more likely images I had cut out of extra catalogs.

What game was I playing??

You alphabetized your games back then! Here they are:
Adventure
Asteroids
Berserk
Bowling
Circus Atari
Combat
Donkey Kong
ET
Football
Frogger
Haunted House
Home Run
Jungle Hunt
Maze Craze
Missile Command
Night Driver
Pac-Man
Phoenix
Star Raiders
Street Racer
Super Breakout
Vanguard
Video Pinball
Warlords
I think I see another game (or 8 track tape) next to the stereo receiver. The cutouts you have are mostly from the Atari Catalog that was sometimes included within game boxes. There also appears to be a pair of pliers, which is interesting.
